Location:eURO Auditorium (Level 0)
Bladder cancer is a frequently occurring disease with a high mortality rate despite optimal treatment. This session will highlight the proper management of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer, including ongoing debate about conservative management in T1 tumour or the rhythm of follow-up in low grade tumour. Additionally the therapeutic impact of the extent of lymphadenectomy during radical cystectomy will be stated. Potential indications and contraindications, such as comorbidity, are related to treatment choice. The implementation of fast-track programs of rehabilitation to enhance postsurgical recovery after cystectomy and the quality of life after urinary diversion will be discussed.
